NYU Memes Hit Facebook, Students Lose Sleep

Last night, our Facebook timelines were flooded by a wave of memes posted to a page called “NYU Memes.” Initially, these image macros were a welcome distraction from looming homework assignments: they were just funny enough to keep us reading, and they provided a comforting feeling of community and togetherness.

That said, the page quickly spiralled out of control. Students posted hundreds of memes, and only a select few were in the least bit funny. As we attempted to sort through the outpour of content, we wished that the memes were hosted on Reddit where¬†the bad content would have been quickly down voted into oblivion. Since that wasn’t the case, we’ve decided to save you from the giant time-suck that is NYU Memes by picking out the diamonds in the rough.
